In this session, you will consider what excellence looks like for each of the main pillars of the Research Excellence Framework. 

The workshop will help to de-mystify star ratings by giving you the opportunity to review and compare research papers and impact statements that have been awarded different star ratings. 

Consider what it means for research outputs to show ‘originality, significance and rigour’. Evaluate your potential to contribute to a future REF submission. Come prepared to evaluate your research presence and to leave empowered to maximise your readiness for the next REF.

This session is for you if:

  • You are aspiring to be ‘REF submittable’
  • You want to evaluate your potential to contribute to a future REF submission
  • You want to understand the quality expectations of the REF (what do top rated journal articles and impact case studies look like?)

Key features of the session:

  • Consider what it means for research outputs to show ‘originality, significance and rigour’
  • Evaluate your potential to contribute to a future REF submission
  • Consider the importance of career planning in relation to REF
